Leclercq is a talented French painter who has exhibited and received prizes for his work in France and the US. An artist formerly dedicated to drawing, Leclerq now considers himself a most traditional painter. Working within New Realism Art, his pieces immerse us into rich environments and showcase the sublime feminine.
” I’m a traditionnal painter. All my work are made only with pencils, pastels, brushes or some paint. My current approach is an expression in the mind of realism but with the integration of romantic or symbolist elements. My purpose is at first to create some positive emotion, to begin with mine. Above all, I stage human beings with a preference for the femininity, often sublimated by the nudity.” Jean-Pierre Leclercq
